 We’d been asking for less expensive cabinets and combos for the European market for some time, and Genz Benz dutifully obliged at this years NAMM.

 

Such was the success of the new ‘FOCUS’ cabinets, Bass Gear Magazine awarded them a ‘Best in Show’ award, one of only 6 awards that they give out at the show.

 

Here is what they had to say on their forum:

 

I finally made it past the GB booth and I must say the new Shuttle stuff is far and away the best I've heard in the line yet. Enough so that I'm probably gonna' get a rig and run it through some paces. Just have to decide which pieces. I'm mostly thinking about the 9.2 (or Max 9.2) and a pair of the 210 cabs. While I was there, however, I did hear both of the 112's together as well as the new Focus cab line. Very impressive. I predict the Focus cab line will be a huge seller. Even though they're not NEO, they're still very light and can really take the juice and pump out the sound.

One of the things I really liked about the new Shuttle line is how they mellowed out the profile buttons. Previously, I pretty much needed to re-EQ with each one, which is not the way I like to use a contouring control like that. The added level control on the Max's solved the problem on those, but the new 6.2 and 9.2 are pretty much where I'd want them without it, so the simpler amp design is now a more viable option.

Another thing I really liked is how they added gain and made the distortion a bit creamier. Just seems to generally sound better to me. And while I didn't really get a chance to push it into 3DPM, I heard it on Ed's vid, and I like that a lot, too. Bottom line, it's a great rev to the product line.

Fun stuff... I'll have to post some gig reports eventually... now, just gotta' figure out what...

+1 They made nice changes across the board. You can now push the tube harder in the 6.2 and 9.2, very similar to the tube channel on the MAX heads. The changes to the global tone controls is nice, too, and it did seem like the low mids were thickened up a bit, though some of that could have been the cabs, too. The ShuttleMAX 9.2 is still my favourite of the line up. I don't need the smaller form factor, and it's light as all get out. The features are great, too. I still dig my ShuttleMAX 12.0, but I would have picked the 9.2 over the 12.0 if it had been available at the time.

What really blew me away were the Focus cabs. They sounded like they belonged in a much higher price range, and the light weight and form factor was very nice. We ended up giving Genz-Benz one of our six Best of Show Awards for the Focus line of cabs, and I think they totally deserved it.
